    A friend of mine went to a French army depot in the 1980s. They were still filled with shermans and other ww2 stuff.

    Didn't torpedos run on compressed air? Later ones were electric i think.

    WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    It's nice to see these moulds made. We had some in the museum collection. I have a huge transmission bearing completely made in wood even the screws. It was painted to look like cast iron.

    Straightening out bend in cast alluminium

    A car restorer from a firm that makes aluminium bodies once told me a trick to form aluminium. That was clean it up first to bare. Then trace some lines on it with a bar of soap. Then slowly heating it with a torch from the other side till the soap lines get black. Then the aluminium is softened up enough to form. I don't know if this also works for cast aluminium. Good luck.

    WW1 finds and discoveries

    This nice pic turned up on the Citroen truck forum. The british tank with german crosses on it. The french did paint the protruding edges of the wreck white for "road security" 😉 The strange thing is that seen the after 1935 traction this wreck must have been laying there for a while.

    For brass cleaning i had good results with vinigar with a few spoons of salt in it. You see it eating away the green oxydation.

    It's why they have double tyres in the rear to carry the extra load. These were car chassis in the beginning not trucks.
